The Arkansas Symphony Orchestra named Rhodes scholar Philip Mann its Music Director in 2010, after a search lasting over a year. Since then, the ASO has been clarifying its programming, including a casual-dress “Beethoven and Blue Jeans” performance as part of its “Masterworks” series. The orchestra also plays chamber pieces and pops events as part of its annual calendar; all told, the ASO plays more than 30 concerts a year, including occasional “run-out” concerts geared at bringing classical music to smaller communities in Arkansas that might otherwise miss out. The ASO has a number of resident ensembles, such as the Rockefeller Quartet and the Arkansas Symphony Youth Orchestra.
